This is the popular daily/regular two-step method for maintaining moisturized hair:
Step 1: Add a Moisturizer (Example, Shea Butter or Glycerine and Water)
Step 2: Seal with a light oil. (Example, Coconut or Argan Oil)
Most people will tell you that adding petrolatum-based oils (grease) or Vaseline will seal in the moisture of your hair but will also block out any additional moisture from getting in. Sealing in moisture is good, blocking additional moisture from getting in is bad. That's my take... but what do YOU think?
The Creative Lady in the video below is very happy with her results from using Vaseline. Check out her vid before making a final comment. Is it better to focus on the look of the hair rather than the overall health? I mean, is using Vaseline or any other grease for styling really a big deal when you're just going to wash it out anyway. Your hair gets moisture while you're deep conditioning it anyway and you can put a leave-in conditioner before adding the grease so your hair can still have moisture. Right? No? Please respond by commenting. I'm eager to hear what you all think.
